Sturgis, SD (January 28, 2014) - The Sturgis Buffalo Chip just announced that Mötley Crüe will be making a stop at the Chip’s annual Motorcycle and Music Festival during the band’s final tour, which is aptly named “All Bad Things Must Come to an End.” The glam metal rebels are taking one last tour of the U.S. with special guest, Alice Cooper, and both will take to the Buffalo Chip’s main stage on Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014 during the Sturgis Rally festival.
The members of Mötley Crüe have decided to end their careers on a high note, citing their belief that many bands often fade into obscurity. “We believe artists should be in control of their own destiny and that destiny also includes when it should be done so that their fans can forever be proud,” Mötley Crüe bassist, Nicky Sixx, said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.
Legendary shock-rock entertainer, Alice Cooper, will take the stage at the Buffalo Chip’s Sturgis Rally festival prior to the Mötley Crüe performance. Cooper is known for a style and stage show that combines garage rock with elements drawn from vaudeville and horror movies—often including props like guillotines, fake blood, electric chairs and boa constrictors. Fans can expect to hear many of Alice Cooper’s well-known songs, such as “School’s Out,” “I’m Eighteen,” and “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” during his Buffalo Chip performance.
The 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival will deliver nine days of non-stop entertainment Aug. 1-9, 2014. Over 20 live bands will take to the Buffalo Chip’s main stage during the festival, including Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Florida Georgia Line. More band announcements will be coming throughout the year. Camping passes are on sale now and all concerts are free with camping.
